New Bulletin Board from the S.O.
As we welcome a new school year, we welcome new ideas! This year we are using the former mental health resources bulletin board, which is next to the main staircase in the basement (next to the cafeteria) as a School Advice Board. Every month, the School Advice Board will have a new theme and advice corresponding with that theme! 

To make this bulletin board more helpful and constructive, we'd like for you to share your own advice moving forward! This month’s theme is “Fall into the School Year" and you can find advice from your own peers on how to adjust to the school year. 

Every month, the student Leadership Cabinet will be sending out an email where you can share your advice and we will then add all the advice we can to the bulletin board. 

Thank you everyone and make sure to check out the new board!
